Lisa Backhouse's Biography

Lisa Backhouse is a public identity with a professional career spanning media, government and business. One of Queensland’s most respected television news presenters and journalists, Lisa was the female face of the ABC and host of the State’s only locally produced current affairs program, Stateline. Renowned for her professionalism, integrity and sharp interviewing style, she has also presented for Channel Nine and Network Ten.

Lisa rose to national prominence as an outspoken public figure in the campaign to relocate the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s Brisbane studios, following an unprecedented breast cancer cluster; a story documented by the ABC’s Australian Story program in 2007.

In recent years, Lisa has achieved success as a corporate executive charged with managing business reputation across a number of high profile sectors.  She had a unique centre stage position as the head of government and public policy for a leading financial services company during the Banking Royal Commission and has managed the public and community interface for some of the country’s most contentious resource industry projects.

A highly experienced master of ceremonies, host and conference facilitator, Lisa has a variety of significant events to her credit. She brings a wealth of real world experience, unique insights, and proficiency to her events. 

Following an inspirational battle with breast cancer, Lisa is also in high demand as a public speaker. She connects personally with audiences - shining a light on resilience, advocacy, and what it really means to have it all.
